Purpose

This research study will test OT-82, which is an investigational ("research" or "experimental" ) drug. The study has two stages (Stage 1 and Stage 2). The purpose of Stage 1 is to determine the safety and tolerability and the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or the maximum tested dose of OT-82 administered orally to participants. The purpose of Stage 2 is to determine the preliminary efficacy of OT-82 in relapsed or refractory lymphoma at the MTD or the maximum tested dose. Both parts of the study will also evaluate the pharmacokinetics (absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination) of OT-82. OT-82 treatment slowed the growth, reduced the size, or in some cases cured certain cancers in animal studies. It is hoped that participants with relapsed or refractory lymphoma treated with OT - 82 in this study will experience slowing tumor growth and/or reduction of tumor size.

Inhaled or topical steroids and adrenal replacement doses ≤ 10 mg daily prednisone equivalents are permitted in the absence of active autoimmune disease. - Uncontrolled illness including, but not limited to, uncontrolled infection, disseminated intravascular coagulation, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements. - Known positive status for HIV and: 1. Not receiving optimal anti-HIV therapy 2. Demonstrated to be noncompliant with anti-HIV therapy. 3. Has evidence of worsening HIV viral load (as assessed by HIV real-time qPCR). 4. Not willing to attend HIV clinic follow-up at appropriate intervals. - Active or chronic hepatitis B or hepatitis C (screening is not required). - Any medical condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, places the patient at unacceptably high risk for toxicity. - Anticoagulation with warfarin or a direct thrombin inhibitor; a washout period of 7 days before administration of a patient's first dose of study drug is required for patients who are taken off these treatments (treatment with low molecular weight heparin is allowed). - Requires a medication(s) that is a strong inhibitor of cytochrome CYP3A4 (boceprevir,clarithromycin, cobicistat, conivaptan, diltiazem, anoprevir/ritonavir, elvitegravir/ritonavir, grapefruit juice, idelasib, indinavir/ritonavir, itraconazole, ketoconazole, lopinavir/ritonavir, nefazodone, nelfinavir, paritaprevir/ritonavir/ombitasvir and/or dasabuvir, posaconazole, ritonavir, saquinavir/ritonavir, tipranavir/ritonavir, troleandomycin, voriconazole, and telithromycin). - Requires a medication(s) that is a strong inducer of CYP3A4 (carbamazepine, enzalutamide, mitotane, phenytoin, rifampin, and St John's wort). - Requires a medication(s) that is a strong inhibitor of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) (amiodarone, carvedilol, clarithromycin, cyclosporine, dronedarone, elacridar, itraconazole, ketoconazole, lapatinib, lopinavir/ritonavir, propafenone, quinidine, ranolazine, reserpine, ritonavir, saquinavir/ritonavir, tacrolimus, telaprevir, tipranavir/ritonavir, verapamil).

Arm Groups

ArmDescriptionAssigned Intervention
Experimental
Stage 1 Dose Escalation
The dose escalation arm will use a modified 3+3 design to determine the maximum tolerated dose. or maximum tested dose.
  • Drug: OT-82 Dose Escalation
    The starting OT-82 dose level will be16.5mg/m2 given orally as an oral suspension once daily on Days 1-3, 8-10, and 15-17 of each successive 28-day cycle. Dose escalation will follow a modified 3+3 design. There is no maximum duration of OT-82 treatment; however, treatment will be discontinued if there is unacceptable toxicity, disease progression, withdrawal of consent by the patient, noncompliance with study requirements, intercurrent illness, development of symptoms or conditions listed as exclusion criteria, or closure of the study by the Sponsor.
Experimental
Stage 2 Dose Expansion
The dose expansion arm will use the maximum tolerated dose to determine preliminary efficacy.
  • Drug: OT-82 Dose Expansion
    A total of 25 patients evaluable for disease response will be treated with OT-82 on Days 1-3, 8-10, and 15-17 of the 28-day cycle at the MTD or maximum tested dose determined from Stage 1. This may include patients treated at that dose in Stage 1 plus expansion at that dose during Stage 2. Evaluability for disease response requires that patients receive at least one dose of OT-82. There is no maximum duration of OT-82 treatment; however, treatment will be discontinued if there is unacceptable toxicity, disease progression, withdrawal of consent by the patient, noncompliance with study requirements, intercurrent illness, development of symptoms or conditions listed as exclusion criteria, or closure of the study by the Sponsor.

Detailed Description

OT-82 affects an enzyme in the cancer cell called nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (abbreviated NAMPT), which is involved with making energy for the cancer cell. OT-82 deprives the cancer cell of the energy that it needs to grow and divide. This is a Phase 1, non-randomized (all participants will receive the study medication), open-label (identity of the study drug will be known to the participant and the study staff), controlled (the methods of the study are not random) study. Approximately 45 -50 participants at approximately 10 study centers across the USA will take part in this research study. The starting dose for Stage 1 is 16.5 mg/m2 per day. Participants in Stage 1 will be assigned a dose dependent on when he or she entered the study. Doses will increase for each new group of 3 to 6 participants until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or the maximum tested dose is reached. OT-82 is an oral liquid suspension that will be taken by mouth once per day for 3 days followed by a 4-day rest period.. A participant may continue to receive treatment with OT-82 as long as the study doctor feels it is in their best interest; as long as the participant does not develop intolerable side effects; as long as the participant wishes to remain in the study; or as long as the sponsor does not close the study. Participants in Stage 2 of the study will receive either the MTD or the maximum tested dose of OT-82 determined in Stage 1. Assessment of anti-tumor activity will primarily focus on categorical objective response (Partial Response (PR) or Complete Response (CR)) as defined according to the consensus recommendations of the Lugano Classification criteria for malignant lymphoma (Cheson et al., 2014).
